It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Kingdom of Ash and Briars by Hannah West + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for KINGDOM OF ASH AND BRIARS by Hannah West, releasing September 15, 2016 from Holiday House. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Hannah:

Hey YABC! Thanks for joining me for the cover reveal of Kingdom of Ash and Briars. When the Holiday House team first sent me a link to Dan Burgess's work, I melted with happiness. Every piece was mystical, dark and, above all, beautiful. When I got to see the cover itself, I realized how much thought had gone into portraying the story's essence. Well, first I flailed with joy. Then I realized how much thought had gone into it, and found myself thinking "it's like the artist climbed inside my head." I truly appreciate the work that went into what you're going to see below, and I hope you enjoy the result as much as I did!

~Hannah West (KINGDOM OF ASH AND BRIARS, Holiday House)

About the Book
 
Bristal, a sixteen-year-old kitchen maid, lands in a fairy tale gone wrong when she discovers she has elicromancer magic in her blood. Elicromancers are an ancient breed of immortal people, but only two remain in Nissera after a bloody civil war. Bristal joins the ranks of Brack and Tamarice without knowing that one of them has a dark secret . . . Tamarice is plotting a quest to overthrow the realm s nobility and take charge herself. Together, Bristal and Brack must guard the three kingdoms of Nissera against Tamarice’s black elicromancy. There are cursed princesses to protect, royal alliances to forge and fierce monsters to battle all with the hope of preserving peace.

Building on homages to Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jane Austen s Emma and the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, Hannah West makes a spectacular and wholly original debut.

She spends her days in Rockwall, Texas with her fiancé and her rambunctious blue heeler.
